About 10 HANDS :

The 5 artists have collaborated on a series of art prints to re-engage themselves with the process of silk screen printing and exhibit the results to celebrate it as an art form.

In recent years in creative industries, It is widely regarded that print is dead, and has been surpassed by digital and web outputs. Thus spurring an international counter movement of artists celebrating print of all its forms under the social media umbrella of #PRINTISNTDEAD

10 HANDS is the artists' contribution to the 'print isn't dead' ideology by taking time from their digital design schedule to produce a small number of screen print editions for the people of Dublin to view.

10 HANDS aims to engage the viewer with screen printing as a medium and process. The show centers around 5 collaborative screen prints. The 5 prints consist of 3 layers, each designed by a different artist. Each artist has responded to the layer below them, thus drawing the viewers attention to a number of screen printing's aesthetic qualities : layering, the mix of transparency and opacity, offsetting and registration, and the variety of line and image quality achievable within the medium. To complement and contrast these works, each artist will be exhibiting a selection of their own fine art prints, with mediums varying between screen and digital gliceé printing.
